know, last summer, president obama was happy to make serious changes to medicare in exchange for getting a grand bargain. if he is reelected, he will go back to the table and i am sure the same questions will be on the table again. he has said he is open to making those changes. >> let me explain the difference between what obama would do with a $716 billion, and what romney and ryan would do. obama takes the money out of medicare and reduces the payments to doctors and hospitals which obviously reduces services. one sixth of all hospitals will have to shut down or refuse the elderly. he takes the money, and the 716 he saves, and places it into a new entitlement called obamacare, which will fund the uninsured. good cause but it takes from a and gives to b. what ryan does, in the original plan, he takes the same amount, and put it back into the medicare trust fund way to invest in the future. medicare is a way to see that we are going to cut a little now and then we will have it in the out years, where under normal plans, with no changes, you would have nothing in the out year
at one point in time, from medicare given to obama care, does biden, vice president biden have to really like put the hold up, wait a minute, and go in on congressman ryan? >> look, he has it to obviously put up something of a rebuttal and satisfy that itch among democrats for a more aggressive pushback, and he's comfortable with that. that's the kind of thing vice president biden has done over the years. he's an engaged debater and enjoys the give-and-take. it doesn't come across as too mean, but he has a habit of, loquaci loquacious and has many gaffes. they're trying to take advantage of his long experiment at the head of national government. >> thank you very much. greatly appreciate you coming on to talk with us. pretty exciting week again. we're still waiting to see if the race has nvt changed after last week's debate and the jobs numbers. there's no doublt that it has. they write, quote, the body language from body campaigns suggests that the race did change. a more confident romney camp and an obama campaign with a greater sense of urgency. let's bring in mark murray. i want to t

now that hospitals may be hit with big fines under president obama's healthcare law. that law says medicare can fine hospitals that have too many patients readmitted with complications within 30 days of their discharge. the average fee? $125,000 per facility. there are worries how those fines could affect the hospital bottom lines and their treatment of patients. i read this and say they are going to final hospitals because they want to hold them accountable for patient care. too many patients being readmitted within 30 days of discharge due to complications and they want to improve quality. i say great. would i like to improve quality and i don't want patients having complications either. >> 2,200 hospitals is 2/3 of all the hospitals in the u.s. that takes medicare. we are talking about top hospitals be massachusetts general, university of chicago, vanderbilt hospital, hospitals that are very, very great. megyn: don't discharge somebody who is going come back in 30 days with a major complication. >> the hospitals i just named are called ter tirks ary patients. they are treating s

. knott not with big deductions medicare cannot exist with the other side in office: it will explode. $716 billion -- >> it was taken out of medicare. >> here's what i think you would do if you were debating president obama. i believe he is arrogant. i don't think he has ever taken a punch in his life. the biggest deal you and i talked about this before is tony rest tone the convicted felon had the biggest deal he did before he became president. >> if romney and ryan go into these debates and punch, i don't think -- i would like to see if this president is able to take a punch in a debate. >> i will say this. >> by the way rhetorical. >> they will accuse me of this. >> what will they call me? >> who knows. >> mitt romney had the best political week of his life in florida. he went down he was doing poorly. he had to win florida. he had two debates. newt gingrich is a great debater. he won both debates. he won florida. he did the greatest job. i told him this is the single greatest week politically speaking of your political career. frankly he has to do the same thing. he has to go in

as mitt romney. it's really on medicare especially, it's the ryan policies that obama is running against. and then lastly, i think what ryan and biden are defined by in a lot of ways and for biden, that's partially hit his gaffes. is he going to step in it? is there going to be some memorable sound bite from that debate? and ryan is known as the numbers guy. and the whole obama campaign now against romney and ryan is that the numbers on the republican side don't add up. so i think there's going to be pressure on ryan to explain the numbers or at least the obama folks are going to try and pressure ryan to explain the numbers. so these things usually don't matter. it's the undercard. but this time i think there could be a little more importance. >> i think you're exactly right. biden's actually a very good debater. he was very good during the democratic debates in '08. he beat barack obama every time. he is good in the debates, but boy, he can't afford to have an off night, can he? >> no. >> i mean, you talk about feeding into a narrative. i actually think paul ryan can break even and he'l
